Shadow Danceland 影子舞团
Founded by Stephen Ah Sen in October 2019, the Dance Company ‘Shadow Danceland’ was formed to give more visibility to the Chinese community in the local Mauritian arts scene. Stephen is an award-winning choreographer having won accolades at the Singapore Youth Festival with his choreographies achieving Gold with Honors as well as being a Gold Medallist at the Australia’s Teachers of Dancing at Bangkok.
Starting with a youth group of 8 dancers, they performed and filmed videos under the name ‘S-Crew’ as the youth crew. The group creates and performs Chinese dance with a modern twist. Other works also include dancing to Chinese pop songs as well as K-Pop songs. They have performed for events such as Chinatown CNY Parade, Zee TV Divali Night and CNY Celebrations at the Mahatma Gandhi Institute.
Most recently, in February 2021, their team Shadow Danceland: Sea Rains were crowned as the 1st Runner-Up in the Junior Category at the Mauritius Dancing Star Dance Competition. The company has been actively performing in various performances and shows around specially for the Chinese New Year events. As the company grows to include adult ‘S-Clan’ and children ‘S-Club’ dance classes, it hope to continue sharing and spreading passion for Chinese arts.
